Every season Greg Olsen disappoints. He will have his solid weeks, but he will also let you down and get less than 50 Yards Receiving in a matchup you thought was automatic. Sooner than later this duo with Cam Newton should be dominate. Off of playaction in the wildcat, I don't see how defenses are able to stop it so well
The Chargers failed to improve their horrible offensiveline. Which likely means Gates will be blocking more often than you want. Still Antonio should be able to take advantage of the middle with Vincent Brown and DNX "Ride or Die" pulling safties 40 Yards down the field.

Olsen finished 2012 with 843 yards and 5 TDs. His numbers look good from the outside, but if you factor in the fact that Olsen had games in 2012 when he did absolutely nothing it gives a clearer picture. The later you can wait on guys like Olsen and the tiers below, the better.
Last season was a disappointing year for Gates, but he managed to reel in 7 TDs. With the loss of their number one WR Denario Alexander, Gates will once again remain the most consistent option in San Diego. At 33 years old, Gates used this off-season to shed some pounds and add muscle. I would expect 800 yards and 7-8 TDs from Gates this season in San Dieeeaaaggoo

Seattle will be focused on Steve Smith and Cam's running, so Olsen could be pretty active.
Texans not the best matchup and Gates isn't what he used to be, so he's just outside the top 10.

I am not a big fan of Gates this year, but he has the match up playing against a Texans D that was just 29th against fantasy tight ends last year.

Tough opening day match up but Olsen could be the main beneficiary with that tough Seahawks secondary matching up with the Panthers WR's.
Tough match up for the Chargers but the Texans did give up a league leading 11 TD's to the TE in 2012
